Birchall, Hyland called up to T&T squad

UNITED STATES-based Chris Birchall and Belgium-based midfielder Khaleem Hyland are among 11 foreign-based footballers called up by Trinidad and Tobago's German head coach Otto Pfister for back-to-back 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

T&T host Bermuda on September 2, before travelling to Barbados for another qualifier five days later.

The first of the foreign-based players will begin to arrive in Trinidad on Sunday.

Trinidad and Tobago will be captained by Stoke City striker Kenwyne Jones. Also called up is England-born York City midfielder Andre Boucard, who has six caps for T&T and last played against Iceland just prior to the 2006 World Cup finals.

Joining the national team is another Englishman, 22-year-old Jake Thompson, who is now playing minor league football with Kettering Town.

Veteran utility player Carlos Edwards, defender Ronald Primus, Lester "Corn Curls" Peltier, Keon Daniel, Julius James and Clyde Leon make up the rest of the foreign-based professionals.

England-born defender JLloyd Samuel has asked to be excused for Trinidad and Tobago's first two matches as he is currently in the process of securing a new club.

Following his team's 3-0 win over India in a friendly on Sunday, head coach Pfister was confident of having a strong team to face Bermuda.

"Next week we have a player camp and we work together," Pfister said on Sunday. "I now know who of the local boys I can use and who I cannot use. Football is a very easy game. I will collect the overseas players and we make two, three, four training sessions and we are ready for the next game."

And striker Stern John thinks that Trinidad and Tobago will be better prepared for Bermuda, who scored a shock 2-1 road victory over the Soca Warriors to start the 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign. T&T advanced when winning the away leg 2-0 in Bermuda.

"I think the last time our team was not as strong as (the one) we have right now," said John. "We went into that game a bit over confident, a bit cocky, and we were defeated in Trinidad. We went to Bermuda and we had to grind out a result. And that is what football is about."

T&T FOREIGN-BASED PLAYERS CALLED UP:

Kenwyne Jones (Captain), Carlos Edwards, Andre Boucard, Khaleem Hyland, Chris Birchall, Jake Thompson, Ronald Primus, Lester Peltier, Keon Daniel, Julius James, Clyde Leon.

You surprised?

In truth and in fact, the team could pick itself from the time Pfister decided he going with a majority foreign based. Certain posters on here keep going on about the wealth of talent we have, but aside from the possible debate that you could have about bringing back man who in the conference - I would give Thompson the bligh because ah he age (btw, what the jail going on with Silvio Spann?) is a set ah USL men yuh left with aside from the two you mention.

I thought Kerry Baptiste woulda get a bligh though
Go Black if you want Jack to Track Back! I support all Soca Warriors - Red, White and Blacklisted.

Now yuh talking. This makes me feel better. Now if they could get some good practice time together we might be able to give ourselves a fighting chance to get out of this group.

Concerns:
Don't know how best to use Jones in a T&T side. Keon Daniel and Carlos Edwards will have to be feeding him some good balls in the box.

Who will play left back?

Creative Mid?

This should be good.

    I like when the forum is in this mode,there had been so much negatives for so long it's nice to breed some fresh air again,although i know it may not last too long,i'll just enjoy it for as long as it lasts.Having said that i would like to take the opportunity to give the supporting technical staff some credit for what's going on so far in our preparation,Pfitser might be the main man but the supporting cast plays an important role (Corneal,Barber,George),some how it seems only when we don't get what we want their names are called.

    Birchall, Hyland called up to T&T squad
    By Ian Prescott (Express)

    UNITED STATES-based Chris Birchall and Belgium-based midfielder Khaleem Hyland are among 11 foreign-based footballers called up by Trinidad and Tobago's German head coach Otto Pfister for back-to-back 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

    T&T host Bermuda on September 2, before travelling to Barbados for another qualifier five days later.

    The first of the foreign-based players will begin to arrive in Trinidad on Sunday.

    Trinidad and Tobago will be captained by Stoke City striker Kenwyne Jones. Also called up is England-born York City midfielder Andre Boucard, who has six caps for T&T and last played against Iceland just prior to the 2006 World Cup finals.

    Joining the national team is another Englishman, 22-year-old Jake Thompson, who is now playing minor league football with Kettering Town.

    Veteran utility player Carlos Edwards, defender Ronald Primus, Lester "Corn Curls" Peltier, Keon Daniel, Julius James and Clyde Leon make up the rest of the foreign-based professionals.

    England-born defender JLloyd Samuel has asked to be excused for Trinidad and Tobago's first two matches as he is currently in the process of securing a new club.

    Following his team's 3-0 win over India in a friendly on Sunday, head coach Pfister was confident of having a strong team to face Bermuda.

    "Next week we have a player camp and we work together," Pfister said on Sunday. "I now know who of the local boys I can use and who I cannot use. Football is a very easy game. I will collect the overseas players and we make two, three, four training sessions and we are ready for the next game."

    And striker Stern John thinks that Trinidad and Tobago will be better prepared for Bermuda, who scored a shock 2-1 road victory over the Soca Warriors to start the 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign. T&T advanced when winning the away leg 2-0 in Bermuda.

    "I think the last time our team was not as strong as (the one) we have right now," said John. "We went into that game a bit over confident, a bit cocky, and we were defeated in Trinidad. We went to Bermuda and we had to grind out a result. And that is what football is about."

    T&T FOREIGN-BASED PLAYERS CALLED UP:

    Kenwyne Jones (Captain), Carlos Edwards, Andre Boucard, Khaleem Hyland, Chris Birchall, Jake Thompson, Ronald Primus, Lester Peltier, Keon Daniel, Julius James, Clyde Leon.

    You know what is good about this squad.....it is our best squad on paper. No if only so and so was on the side etc.

    No wondering what coulda happen or what shoulda been.

    We winning or losing with the best available talent we have...no excuses, time to perform.


    Shouldn't be a problem in that first round ..... But we need to be as good as we have ever been in that next round ......u see that Mexico side ....not easy at all ....they have so much quality ...especially in those two youth teams that now play in those world cups . Time for jones to step up


    next round the players who otto when in England to scout may  join ....
